Vienna as perfect location for European mobility accelerator
Mobility is an essential key factor for a high quality of life. Vienna’s location as the most livable city in the world could not be more fitting. Moreover, Vienna is home to numerous internationally successful mobility industry companies as well as startups and is one of the cities with the best train connections in Europe. In 2022, startups from the transportation sector received the highest investment volume in Austria with €340 million. (Source: Dealroom, Startup Landscape Austria)
Mobility as a decisive factor for the future
Mobility of the future does not only include roads, subways, bicycle or walking paths and much more. It means that it is intended for the largest possible number of people – regardless of age, gender identity, ethnicity, economic status, disability, etc., in order to achieve the best overall output in terms of prosperity, well-being and inclusion.
